    When I think of Hot Spot the first thing that comes to mind is a blue firetruck with a ladder. Sadly GDO Hot Spot was missing said ladder. I decided that with the help of Shapeways I can add that classic G1 Hot Spot look to GDO Hot Spot.

    The upgrade includes an extendable ladder that measures about 12". There is an add on piece that will turn the existing gun into a handheld gun with a 5mm handle. The last piece is the attachment that is used for both the ladder and gun to attach it to Hot Spots arm. The ladder can store on his back in bot mode using existing holes located on his back. And in alt mode you can have either the ladder or gun on his back.

    Please comment and let me know what you think.

    For those interested the set can be purchased at the link below.

    looks nice. but for that price I'd prefer to get Gears of War set. Better plastic plus you get additional weapons. That's no knock on this set but quality of shape ways just doesn't compare to plastic used by the factories. I do like that 5mm post for the gun though. is there a way to just buy that? Would be nice to have it separate anyways so people can have shape ways print that in black while the ladder in white.

    Thanks for the advice, I have updated the store so you can purchase the ladder and gun add-on as individual orders.
